Gavin Swankie double helps Forfar on their way to League 1 play-off final

Gavin Swankie scored twice to send Forfar into the Ladbrokes League 1 play-off final against Peterhead after a 4-2 win over Annan and 6-4 aggregate victory.

The hosts took a 12th minute lead when breaking from an Annan corner and Martyn Fotheringham played in Swankie to fire home from 12 yards.

And it was two goals in the space of five minutes shortly before the interval that effectively decided the tie.

Danny Denholm drilled home in the 32nd minute before Swankie found the top left-hand corner to put the hosts into a comfortable 3-0 lead.

Aidan Smith pulled one back five minutes after the break, having picked himself up after being fouled by Grant Adam to slot home from from the spot.

Darren Ramsay then gave Annan hope with 23 minutes remaining as his left-footed effort nestled in the bottom corner of the net.

But Jamie Bain settled it five minutes later, turning the ball home when Swankie picked him out.
